Why we need your help

article

The recent flooding in the middle of coronavirus has emphasised the need to replant trees. Houses have been washed away during lockdown leaving people homeless and crops ready for harvest have been swept away when the need for food is greatest.

In the Rwenzori Mountains people grow crops on steep mountain sides. These crops are the only means of feeding their families. People have cut down large numbers of trees to farm this land and to provide firewood. This activity has exposed the soil and, coupled with climate change and heavier rainfall, the soil has been eroded. There have been terrible mudslides which have destroyed land, homes and killed people. Families have been displaced and are moving into towns to get work and survive.

William says, "7 people have been killed in this rainy season. We need to protect our hills with trees."

Amaha We Uganda is trying to redress this problem by planting tree nurseries, beginning in our own Garden of Eden. The longer term plan is to buy more land attached to the Garden of Eden but for now you can help by donating £5.00 to fund 5 trees and get this project underway.

 Don't forget to email alex@amahaweuganda.org with your donation reference and names for your certificates.

Why don't you also consider offsetting your carbon footprint.

Together Let's start to save our Planet
